Gloucester light aircraft crash: Two taken to hospital

Two people have been injured when a light aircraft they were travelling in crashed within a few miles of Gloucester city centre.

The man and woman were both taken to hospital from where the plane came down in the Over area at about 16:00 GMT.

An ambulance spokeswoman said they had suffered multiple injuries but both were in a stable condition.

Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service said both casualties were outside of the plane before their crews arrived.

The man was taken by land ambulance to Gloucestershire Royal Hospital but the woman was flown by air ambulance to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol.

Less than two weeks ago another light aircraft crash landed in nearby Sandhurst after a possible mechanical fault.

The pilot of the Robin DR400 aircraft walked away unharmed.
